In modern days, countries around the world vary economically and socially however the footwear designs have become more similar. There are no common standards, principals, and rules yet. The leading footwear manufacturing countries, including Czech, Germany, and Italy are considering footwear designs extensively, which is the daily wear of the human needs, most strategically footwear of children in their growing age. However, Mongolian adult’s foot measurement study results show that in Mongolia, children are wearing unfitting shoes from their young age and create distortion to the foot shape.
Therefore, the purpose of the research is to define the Mongolian children’s foot growth, morphological change by taking plantogram (foot pattern picture) of 6-18 years old children, and determining foot arch index and angle of bunion in the foot.
